Internet Inclusion Working Groups

The IEEE Internet Initiative established seven Internet Inclusion Working Groups through which participants help advance solutions for universal internet access. Participants focus on prioritized challenges and barriers to help connect more than half of the world’s population that is not connected to the internet today. Groups meet periodically to discuss their progress and next steps toward outputs that can be adopted and used in various regions of the world across their focus areas.
